Just Jot It January 11th – Effortless

Worry, loyal, corner, fierce, consequences, wondered, kitchen, follow, headlights, mistake.

I don’t worry if I make mistakes
If you follow me to the kitchen
I’ll cook something nice for you
I can be your loyal friend
Listening to you in the corner
Even at work, I take it as a hobby
That is, go there and enjoy it
I read, I laugh, I cry, I shop, I write
As a consequence, I enjoy my day
I stop and wonder at little things
Smell the roses, listen to music
Walk and have some fresh air
Life isn’t fierce, life is wonderful
We have to take things effortlessly

Thomas – Journal Monday Prompt #9 and Wordle #64

This week’s fun words: Cartilage Paint Session Atomize (to reduce to fine particles or spray) Denouement (the final resolution of the intricacies of a plot, as of a drama or novel) Handle Cue Lapse Cocktail Paramnesia (a distortion of memory in which fact and fantasy are confused) Mizzle (misty rain) Column


Thomas has had a car accident. It was a severe one and his knees were damaged and the cartilages were removed. He has to learn how to walk with crutches. Aside from that, he suffered from paramnesia, a distortion of memory where his facts and fantasies are confused in his mind. Sometimes, his memory lapses. He doesn’t trust anyone which atomizes society and diminishes his range of human experience.

To help Thomas handle his condition, he has a regular therapeutic session with Dr. Smith. He was given a cocktail of medicine for the pain and depression. He started going back to work, where he writes a column in a magazine. As the months went by, he carried on with his life, even went back to his hobby – painting! But sometimes, he would stop in the middle of something and could not remember what he was doing.

Cue: weather changing. It was mizzling steadily, like the stillness that comes with Cornish mizzle. Thomas met Claire in one of the parties he attended. They talked that evening and found out that they have a lot in common. She’s an artist. Perhaps, this is the sunset after the storm, that life could be beautiful again after the accident, after the treatment and therapy. There’s nothing like seeing two improbably beautiful people fall in love, perhaps fight and reach a story’s denouement together.


A Blustery Day – Monday Wordle #46

On a blustery day, I don’t envy people
Who have to travel on the slippery road
I’m happy in the warmth of my house today
Sipping my foaming cocoa with a sprinkle of nutmeg
Wearing my wooly jumper or under the duvet to lie in bed
Because he kept me awake last night, grinding his teeth
I don’t mind seeing a refractive rainbow after the rain
A rainbow with its huge arch of colours in the sky
Richard of York Gave Battle in Vain to imprint them in mind
That means red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet
